Iceland writing its constitution on Facebook

If you want to gauge the power of social networking, consider this: Iceland is writing its new constitution on Facebook. The draft of the crowdsourced constitution is being prepared by a 25-member council, and they are open to suggestions from civilians, even on Facebook. Interested citizens can give their suggestions, contribute to online debates, and contribute to their country’s constitution. Incidentally, 90% of households in Iceland have broadband connections.
